Ex-FBI Agent Speaks Out: Federal Authorities Have Downplayed White Supremacist Violence for Too Long

According to The New York Times, white extremist shooters have now killed at least 63 people in the United States over the past 18 months. Late last month, FBI Director Christopher Wray told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that crime driven by racism and white supremacy was on the rise compared to the past nine months. But former FBI agents say there is reluctance within the agency to tackle white nationalist violence in part due to President Trump’s rhetoric. We speak with Mike German, fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law. From 1988 to 2004, German served as an FBI agent specializing in domestic counterterrorism.

After Dayton Shooting, Gun Violence Reporter Says Misogyny “Clear Link” Between Many Mass Shootings

Over the span of 13 hours, the country was shaken by two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, where a total of 29 people were killed. Shortly before the attack, the El Paso gunman posted an anti-immigrant manifesto on the far-right message board 8chan, while there is still no clear motive for the Dayton shooting. Senator Bernie Sanders and other Democratic leaders are calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold a special session of the Senate to vote on two gun safety bills recently passed in the House. This all comes as the National Rifle Association is imploding. We speak with Alex Yablon, a reporter at The Trace, a news outlet devoted to gun-related news.

HOW HATRED OF WOMEN FUELS THE FAR RIGHT A new report documents at least six high-profile misogyny-driven mass shootings in the U.S. since 2014, and the ways that guns and hatred of women have served as a unifying tie for many far-right groups online. The report also says that supporters of far-right movements “have both adopted misogynist attitudes and used hatred of women to recruit new supporters.” [HuffPost]

  2. Dear Reader,

    The shooter who killed 21 people in El Paso said that a book called “The Great Replacement” inspired him to act against a “Hispanic invasion.”

    You may have already heard about this idea of “replacement.”

    It’s why the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville chanted “Jews will not replace us.” It’s why the gunman who killed 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue was obsessed with the Jewish immigration-aid agency HIAS. And it’s why the New Zealand mosque shooter – whom the El Paso gunman and the Poway, California synagogue shooter cited as inspirations – claimed that immigration was leading to “white genocide.”

    It’s a far-right conspiracy theory that claims Western global elites are using immigration policy to “replace” white people with racial and religious minorities. The 2011 book, by French white nationalist Renaud Camus, didn’t single out Jews as part of this evil “elite” – but anti-Semites quickly began to claim Jewish people were pulling the strings.

    White supremacist websites frequently mention the alleged Jewish role in the Great Replacement. “Most people do not realize that Jews are the driving force behind mass immigration and demographic genocide,” stated the “alt-right” Wikipedia knockoff Rightpedia.

    The theory has even penetrated the halls of Congress. Steve King, the Republican congressman who got kicked off his committees for asking why being a white supremacist was bad, claimed last year that Jewish financier and philanthropist George Soros was behind the Great Replacement.

    President Trump condemned “racism, bigotry and white supremacy” in his remarks Monday on the weekend shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. But as CJ Werleman noted in a Forward op-ed on Sunday, Trump himself has used similar language to the El Paso shooter, saying in March that undocumented border-crossers were “invaders.”

    “People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is,” Trump said then.

    Anti-Semitic incidents have dramatically increased in frequency during the Trump administration – and hate crimes against Latinos are up too. The Forward has continually monitored the threat of white nationalism and will keep doing so.

    Thank you for reading,
